Colors of Easter
(Activity for Children)
(Jelly beans should be placed in a small baggie and a bag given to each child.)
Allow the children to open their bags and select the related color as you read the following.
Green is for the palms that they waved at Him as He entered into Jerusalem.
Purple is for the win He poured and blessed before he faced His final test.
Red is for the precious blood He shed from the crown of thorns placed on His head.
Black is for the sky as He died on the cross, suffering to redeem our loss.
Pink, Yellow and Orange are for the dawn that morning when the tom was empty and hope was reborn.
White is for the dazzling light that awed all who saw Him risen – the Son of God.
